Product Overview

"People always say I'm going to look back on these days and laugh -- why put it off?" When Angela Nissel found herself struggling financially while in college, instead of sulking, she decided to entertain herself by creating an online journal that chronicled her day-to-day trials and tribulations. Written with humor and intelligence, her "Broke Diary" quickly found an audience as people wrote to Angela to empathize with, console, and laugh with her about her experiences and even share their own. The Broke Diaries is the first complete compilation of her experiences, written in a voice that is funny, unique, and dead-on.

Praise
"Charming and sharp, Nissel's diary will be relished by anyone who's ever been a student and remembers living on those ramen noodles."
"Fortunately, Nissel's sassy, snappy voice (distinctly black, vaguely hoochie; it's the literary equivalent of Scary Spice's singing) easily carries the full lightness of this unpretentious book. With enough good humor and off-beat common sense ('Boycott plant food. The revolution will not be fertilized!'), she narrows the sympathy gap considerably."
From the Publisher
Annotation In this true account, a college student, who struggled financially in an urban environment, amuses with anecdotes about lacking cash in a variety of humiliating situations: buying discount groceries, dodging her landlord, and hanging out in check-cashing offices.
Editors Note Based on her own online journal, the author offers an entertaining and compelling account of her everyday trials and tribulations and her real-life financial struggles as a poverty-stricken college student.
